    2 deputies killed in Maryland shootout
    Last Updated Feb 10, 2016 5:48 PM EST

    ABINGDON, Md. -- - Two sheriff's deputies have died from their wounds after a gunman opened fire in a restaurant, near a shopping center in Maryland, the sheriff says.

    A man shot a sheriff's deputy in the head inside a crowded restaurant at lunchtime Wednesday during a shootout, authorities and witnesses previously said.

    The gunman was killed and, remarkably no bystanders were hurt, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said.

    CBS Baltimore reports that the suspect has been identified as 67-year-old David Evans. Police say Evans had several warrants out for his arrest.

    Both deputies were men. One served 16 years, and the other for 30. Their names have not yet been released, CBS Baltimore reports.

    The first shooting took place inside a Panera restaurant in a shopping center in Abingdon, which is about 20 miles northeast of Baltimore.

    Sheriff Gahler is sad to announce that both Deputies injured in today's incident have succumbed to their injuries. #HCSO

    It's not yet known what led to the shooting but the sheriff doesn't believe that there is a threat to the community or any other people involved in the shooting, reports CBS Baltimore.

    Sophia Faulkner, 15, said she and her mother were getting lunch and almost sat right next to the gunman. Instead, they chose a booth about 10 feet away because the man appeared "sketchy" and disheveled. He was sitting in the back and hadn't ordered any food, Faulker and her mother said.

    A sheriff's deputy was called to the restaurant after a report about someone causing a problem. The deputy tried to talk to the man, who was apparently known to workers. The deputy sat down beside him, asked how he was doing and the man shot him in the head.

    "I saw him fall back out of his chair and the blood started coming out," Faulkner said. "I didn't know how to process it. My mom said, 'What's going on?' and I said, 'Get down, someone just got shot.'"

    She said "everyone started screaming" after the gunshot and children -- out of school because of snowfall - were running around.

    "I was freaking out so much and everybody was running to one side of the store. Families were huddling together. I didn't really know what was going on," she said. "You see this stuff online and in movies and on TV when it happens, but you never think you're going to go out to lunch one day with your mom and it's just going to happen."

    The gunman fled and witnesses gave officers a description and the direction he was headed, the sheriff said. After at least one deputy caught up with him, shots were exchanged, leaving the second deputy wounded and the suspect dead, the sheriff said.

    "I saw two women and a child run from Panera to our back door. They were hysterical. They said they heard gunshots," said bartender Mike Davis, who was working at the Ocean City Brewing Co.'s Taphouse. "We locked the door and went to talk to a cop. The cop said not to let anyone in. Then, we heard more gunshots, 'Pop, pop, pop, pop,' from down in the shopping center. It was hectic."

    The sheriff said investigators believe the person acted alone and there is no further threat to the community.

    "The restaurant was very full at lunchtime," Gahler said. "Thankfully, no one else was injured."

    The shopping center is called the Boulevard at Box Hill. It has a mix of shops, restaurants, a grocery store and a bank.


    Yellow tape blocked off the Panera and Taphouse restaurants, but people were coming and going freely at other businesses after the shooting.

    During a press conference, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Wahler announced that David Brian Evans was the suspect who shot and killed two Harford County deputies on Wednesday. Evans had at least two outstanding warrants in two states. Wahler said that one of those warrants was in Florida for assaulting a police officer, fleeing, and eluding. The second warrant was a Circuit Court civil writ issued by the Circuit Court of Harford County.

    2. The First Deputy Was Shot at a Panera Bread in Abingdon
    The first deputy was shot at the Panera Bread in Abindgon, Maryland, near Wegmans. Deputies were dispatched there for an investigation, and Evans shot one of the deputies after they entered the restaurant. Jayne Miller of WBAL-TV reported that the deputy was trying to serve Evans with a warrant when shot. Evans then fled the restaurant, Harford County Sheriff’s Office reported. A witness said he was shot in the head by a man who appeared disheveled, Mike Hellgren of WJZ reported.

    3. The Second Deputy Was Shot Near Parkview Apartments
    After the Panera Bread shooting, Evans fled to the Parkview Apartments area, Harford County Sheriff’s Office reported. Once there, a second deputy tried to make contact with him and Evans shot that deputy also.

    Larry Hogan, Governor of Maryland, shared his prayers and condolences for the families of the deputies who lost their lives:

    4. Evans Was 67 Years Old And Died at the Scene of the Second Shooting
    After Evans shot the second deputy, other officers who were at the scene opened fire. Evans died at the scene of the second shooting, Harford County Sheriff’s Office reported. No other suspects were involved.

    5. Both Deputies Died from Their Injuries
    Both deputies died after being taken to separate hospitals for their injuries. The Harford County Sheriff’s department has not yet released their names, pending notification of families. One deputy was a 30-year veteran who served in the Court Services Division. The other had served for 16 years and was in the Community Services Division, Gahler shared.

    My Dad was a cop for 23 years. The one thing my Mom feared the most, was getting "The Call".
    2 families got that call today. God bless both of them.
